Note: These six days at Bamboo Yoga Retreat is the last of India Unveiled: a three-part retreat. To learn more about the first two parts of this journey please visit:


Upon arriving in Goa’s Bamboo Yoga Retreat, we will take a collective breath and dive deep into our yoga practice. Peacefully secluded at the end of Patnem’s gorgeous white sand beach, Lisa will host six days of enriching workshops and classes, progressing through the chakra systems from root to crown through a combination of therapeutic methods including yoga, meditation, guided self-reflection, massage-ball therapeutics, pilates, and relational-somatic therapies -all designed to help deepen your practice and your intended journey.


With Lisa’s skilled and creative guidance, we will journey through layers of Being, exploring what is necessary to reveal your essential Self. Surrounded by palm trees and quiet ocean waves, we will deepen our connection to ourselves, to each other and to our surroundings. You will also have ample time to individually explore this beautiful environment, both individually and as a group. Indulge in your choice of activities, from swimming in the ocean and relaxing on the beach, to exploring local Goan culture, to visiting surrounding towns where shopping, food, and adventure are abundant. This week is a true celebration of your best self and an ideal conclusion to our voyage together.
